Yesterday he finished runner up in the Scottish International badminton tournament. I watched online the finals between him and Anand pawar. The way he played really amazed me. Extremely fast in the court. He has great potential .

It's Kazumasa Sakai, not Kasumasa Sakai. He is representing Unisys and is in the national team B. He is 22 years old and 179cm.

Kazumasa Sakai finishes the year with a win over Sho Sasaki in then Japan league, 21-11, 22-20 and in control from start to finish.
It's interesting to note how much Sasaki's form has just disappeared after the Olympics.
Also interesting to note that Unisys fielded Sakai over Takuma Ueda, although Sakai has showed excellent form recently in the national championships. This should see him promoted to Japan Team A.
Suetyan, is Takuma Ueda injured?
Edit: here's the link to the match...

Quality of the match is ok. But horrible angle with which it was taken .
Its clearly seen that this youngster is excellent in court. He has changed his style of play a lot in recent times it seems. The way with which he played against Anand pawar was totally different. Happy NewYear Sakai.

Anyways, Kazumasa Sakai has had some good results lately, and it looks like he's got good point construction. Hopefully he won't have only a brief time on the main stage like some Japanese players have had.
